Photo of Ubaldo Lopez's's 2008 Alberta 30 inch muley

UBALDO LOPEZ of Sonora, Mexico, came back to Alberta with a big whitetail on his mind.The first big whitetail he saw gave him the slip, but in the meantime, he was able to connect on this nice wide Alberta mule deer.

This buck will share Ubaldo's trophy room with the great muley (203 B&C) he got with us in 2005.

He used a .280 with 140 grain Barnes X Triple Shock bullets.

Here's a video clip of Ubaldo hunting his trophy mule deer.

Ubaldo's dream of a giant Alberta whitetail became a reality when he took this beautiful buck on the last day of his hunt. The "upswept" tine off the right main beam, really gives this big buck some added character.

He used a .30-06 with 165 grain Barnes X Triple Shock bullets.

Ubaldo is a well known Outfitter in Sonora, Mexico and a good friend.
